USB on Win95

Has anyone managed to get the USB port on the 850Z to communicate with a Windows 95 computer that supports USB? My computer uses Win95 and I would hate to have to get Windows 98 to utilize the USB port.

Sorry, but I doubt it will work. One of the things about Win98 is that it has MUCH better USB support. All in all I think there are about 50 or so updates to the USB support in Win98 and they cannot be patched into any version of Win95.

I believe the absolute minimum is Windows 95 OSR2.1. This was only available on new computers, so if you purchased Windows 95 from a store you don't have it. To check, go to CONTROL PANEL ~ SYSTEM and check the version number on the first screen. If it has no letter next to it or it has an "A" you can't use USB.

It does appear from Epson's own spec sheet on their website that Windows 98 is a minimum requirement for their USB interface.

Hi mattbarrett2 !
Hi , I was in a similar situation a while ago , meaning I needed to back up a Win95 HDD .
I succeeded by taking the drive out of the desktop and connecting it to a win 7 pc . I first tried by putting the drive in a external USB box and connecting it to the Win7 machine . It was a Quantum drive . The pc recognized the drive in the Device Manager but I couldn' access the data in " My Computer " . Then , I connected the Quantum inside my Win7 machine , directly to the IDE port but not using the power plug yet . I booted the computer , waited for Win 7 to be settled and connected the Quantum to the power plug and it worked . I was able to transfer the full content
( 1 GB , ha ha ! ) on a dvdrom and format the Quantum afterwards . I didn't need it anymore but I could have easily placed it back into the Win95 unit and install a new supported OS on it .
Maybe this will help you ?
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

HOWTO_Connect How to connect Motorola W375 to a Windows computer Introduction¶ This document describes how to connect your Motorola W375 to your computer in order to use it as a modem, or to administer it with Motorola W375 Manager software.
Connecting¶ To connect your motorola W375, follow the next steps:
  • Download and uncompress Motorola W375 Driver from this site.
  • Connect your W375 to your computer with its lid closed.
(You can also connect the device with its lid open, and choose "not" when it asks for permission to connect as an storage device)
  • When Windows asks you for a driver, select Motorola W375 driver folder.
This way, the next time you connect your mobile phone closed, your computer will recognize it as a new communications port and you are ready to use it with Motorola W375 Manager. If you open this "COM" port with a terminal emulation software (i.e Windows Hiperterminal) and type "AT", the mobile phone will respond you with an "OK" string.
Using it with Motorola W375 Manager¶ To use your mobile with Motorola W375 Manager, simply connect your mobile phone closed and then, start Motorola W375 Manager software.
Using it as a modem¶ To use your mobile phone as a modem, install "Standard 19200 Modem" driver and select the communications port associated to your motorola W375.
About Motorola W375 driver¶ Motorola W375 driver is basically the same driver known as Motorola USB Charging Driver. You can download Motorola USB Charging driver from motorola US support web site for Motorola W375. If you try to use Motorola USB Charging driver directly with your Motorola W375, device type will not be recognized, but if you change device ID from "USB\VID_2811&PID_0702" to "USB\VID_22b8&PID_4061", this usb charging driver will become completely compatible with wour Motorola W375 mobile phone. The driver you can download from this site, is exactly a Motorola USB Charging driver with the mentioned modification.

Hello i have problem to install my new mouse i just only buy it yesterday but i have an error during installation. My driver installation file for this device is misssing a necessary entry because the inf...


What OS are you running? What type of mouse (USB or PS2)? The last time I saw this error, it said the file was for Win95 release B (95 OSR2.1) or later and the mouse was a USB mouse with a USB to PS2 adapter. Since that computer was running Win95a, the mouse didn't work with the computer since OS had no USB support.

If you have Win95, check your OS version number. If it is the later version, you need to enable the USB support. The patch is called usbsupp.exe and should be on the setup disc in the Other folder (<CD-drive>:\Other\USB Folder). Load the disc and double click on the exe. It may be posted on line somewhere but I am not sure of any valid versions (no malware payload).

If you have an earlier version of Win95, only a PS2 mouse will work.

I hope this helps.

Just loaded flight sim to m/soft vista and have lost the driver disc for sidewinder pricision 2 joystick. Is this unit compatable with vista? If so, can someone direct me to the best free driver download...


Sorry it will not work with vista.

Operating System Requirements: This product is designed to run on the following operating systems:
  • Windows 98
  • Windows 95
Additional Requirements:
  • Windows 95/98
  • Pentium 166 or higher
  • 16MB RAM
  • USB port
  • DirectX 7.0 or later
You can try this also

Usually, Windows will find and automatically install the necessary drivers when you plug your game controller into your computer.
• Plug the game controller into the USB port on the computer. The computer can be turned on when you do this. Windows will recognize the new hardware and set it up to work properly.
Note: Controllers that use game ports (and other ports) are not supported in this version of Windows.
Try this second:

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.‌ If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

2. In Device Manager, locate the device you want to update, and then double-click the device name.

3. Click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver and follow the instructions.

Will Dell Axim sync with Outlook 2000 on Windows 95?


It should if you have USB on the W95 machine. ActiveSync is compatable with W95. It worked for me with Outlook 98 on a Win95 laptop synching to a PC2000 PDA (Jornada), however I was using a serial cable.
